|Join us for a guided walking tour of Prague Castle, the No.1 tourist attraction in Prague.|
Visit the ancient seat of the Kings of Bohemia and enjoy magnificent views over the whole city.
This sightseeing tour is in small groups of a maximum of 10 people, and is mostly on foot (Prague Castle is pedestrianised).
After meeting your guide near Charles Bridge, we stroll though the cobbled streets of the Lesser Town, then ride a tram up to Prague Castle.
Prague Castle is an intriguing mix of squares, buildings and fortifications, including palaces, state apartments, great halls, churches, a monastery, viewing towers, and museums and art galleries.
The guide brings the whole complex to life, explaining the castle's turbulent history, and its royal and presidential connections.
We see St. Vitus Cathedral, where the coronation of medieval kings and queens was carried out. We admire the beautiful architecture of the Old Royal Palace. And we see St. George's Basilica, founded in 920 AD, the best-preserved Romanesque church in Prague.
We continue on through the grand squares to see Golden Lane (Zlatá ulička); dating from the 15th century, skilled artisans lived and worked in this area, providing vital goods and services for the inhabitants of Prague Castle. This is where the mystical art of alchemy was practised!
Finally, because Prague Castle sits on a hill, we take in stunning views over the city.
Prague Experience walking tours are led by professional, licensed tourist guides.
The tour is in English.
